CLA 1401 Re-imagining English Course aims This course aims to help you to think about the English language and your relationship to it in a new way through exploring the role English plays in your everyday life in popular culture, media, literature, education and the workplace. You will reflect upon how English has shaped the way you think about and perceive the world, how you communicate with other people, and how you will perform your occupations in the future. The focus of the course is helping you to engage with the English language not just intellectually, but also creatively and emotionally, exploring how to use it as a tool for self-expression and self-exploration.
